Somerset, 3?n.t
The Whi and Anlimasons of Somer
set County are requested to meet at 2,
P. M. on Tuesday the 14th of July, at
the Court House in Somerset, for the
purpose of appointing conferees, to meet
the conferees of Fayette and Greene, to
put in nomination a candidate for Con
gress. By order of the County Committee.
Next Governor Gen. Markle.
Wc perceive that several journals are
agitating the question as to w ho shall be
the next Whig candidate for Governor,
and a disposition manifested in certain
quarters to push the claims of Gen. Irt
viv. We repeat now what we said be
fore, that against Gen. Irvin we have
nothing to ure. Believing him to be an
honest, devoted Whig, a man of strong
raind, and deservedly popular in his own
district, we hope to see him the Whig
candidate for Governor at the proper
time, when, if our life be spared us till
then, wc shall take pleasure in giving him
our humble support. But the present is
not the time for his friends to urge his
claims. Gen. Markle, at the last Gu
bernatorial election, ran under most unfa
vorable circumstances, as all are aware,
and yet came very nigh being elected.-
He received, we honestly believe, at least
ten thousand votes more than could have
been riven to Gen. Irvin or anv other
Whiff under the circumstances, and it
would therefore be .unjust and impolitic
toet him aside for a new man at the next
Gubernatorial election. No: let the old
"Fighting Captain" have another trial,
and if he cannot be elected, no other
Whig can.
Somcllilnsr About Ruttcr.
A gentleman of this county, who had
last year engaged in the Butter business,
informed us recently, that the Baltimore
dealers had determined for the future to
have all Butter inspected before purchas
ing. It appears that they have come to
this determination in consequence of hav
ing last year received some lots which
were sold to them as "Glades Butter,"
but which on examination proved to be a
very inferior article. As many of our
farmers make large quantities of Butter
annually, it 'may be to their interest to
note this fact; for by sending to market
an article of the "right stripe," they will
no doubt be amply compensated, h its
ready sale and an increased price, for any
little extra trouble they may be at in pre
paring it.
Militia and Volunteers.
Gen. Cameron, on presenting in the
Senate lately the prececdings of a meet
ing of the citizens of Philadelphia, ten
dering to the Government their services
in the existing war with Mexico, stated
that Pennsylvania had a muster roll of
two hundred and thirty thousand milita,
and a volunteer force of thirty two thou
sand raakinff altogether two hundred
and sixty-two thousand men, which is
more than half the number that Buona
parte marched into Russia when he at
tempted the conquest of the great Empire
of the North. Pennsylvania alo le, there
fore, could furnish a force sufficient to
overrun and subdue all Mexico.
A "Democratic War."
The Philadelphia Keystone, a rampant
locofoco sheet, designates the present
war with Mexico as a "Democratic war,"
thinking no doubt thereby to be able to
make a little capital for the Administra
tion, whose conduct in the matter has
been censured by some. We believe
the Keystone to be correct in its designa
tion, in so far as the bringing on of the
war is concerned; but as regards the fight
ing part, we think it most cgregiously
iu error. The war with Mexico, no
matter what are the causes that have pro
duced it, is viewed by all patriotic citi
zens as a national contest, in which the
whole country is interested, and in the
prosecution of which men of all parties
have manifested their readiness to partici
pate. Where, then, is the propriety or
justice of giving it a party character!
As well, because the gallant Gen. Tay
lor is a thoroughgoing Whig, might wc
denominate it a "Whig War," and claim
for the Whig party all the credit cf his
recent victories.

Speech or Mr. Stewart.
Wre refer the reader to another column
for some remarks of Mr. Stewart in re
gard to the existing war and the pay of
those who are to do the fighting part. All arc
aware that, until farther enlistments take
place, the Government's main reliance for
troops will be upon volunteers and it is
this meritorious class of soldiers whose
pay Mr. Stewart wishes to have increas
ed to ten dollars per month just two
dollars more than Members of Congress
receive per day. Is there any thing ex
travagant, unfair, or unjust in this? We
opine not and we further opine that,
had the proposition came from an other
quarter, those -who are so loud in their
censures of Mr. Stewart for making it,
would have denounced as cowards and
traitors and tories, all who should
have opposed it. The truth is, there are
some folks whom Mr. Stewart cannot
please, do as he will for whom he mud
dies the water whether he passes the
stream above or below them and who, if
they cannot find fault with his acts, try to
injure him by assailing his motives.
'Tis a pity a great pity, that some
people are so hard to please!
The Xallonal Fair.
Wc are gratified to learn that the great
National Fair, recently held at Welling
ton City, proved entirely satisfactory to
the friends of Home Industry, Tind did
not fail to convince even the most scepti
cal free traders that, under the operations
of the present excellent Tariff, our manu
facturers and artisans can cope success
fully with those of any other country.
And we are ih e more gratified at this re
sult, because the project of holding such
a Fair originated with our Representa
tive in Congress, Hon. Andrew Stew
art, who rallied to his aid influential
men from the several States, to carry out
that enterprizc, and to whom the nation
is therefore mainly indebted for this great
triumph of our workmen over those of
Europe. The policy of protecting our
manufactures and the skill of our me
chanics and artisans, have been thereby
fully demonstrated, and opposition in a
crrpiit measure silenced. Even some of
the Administration presses speak most fa
vorably of the exhibition, which we take
as an indication of an intention on their
part to "cut loose" from "Jemmy O'Polk"
and come out in favor of the true inter
ests of the country, and for which we
rannot too hifrhlv commend them. But
our friendly advice to them at the same
time is, not to allow that fact to come to
the knowledge of "Father Ritchie," lest
he pronounce upon them his anathema
and read them out of the party as politi
cal heretics.

Resolved, That the thanks of the
whigs of this Congressional district are
due to our able and indefatigable Repre

for his untiring defence of the Tariff
for his project of a National Fair to
counteract the influence of the exhibition
of British manufactures, in one of the
rooms of the Capiiol,got up by the friens of
JamesK. Polk,enemiesof the I anfT,to pros

the pay of volunteer soldiers.

Kentucky Volunteers.
The Washington Union says: "When
it was proclaimed that the government
had called on Kentucky for troops to
prosecute the war against Mexico,suchwas
the zeal displayed, that two captains who
had succeeded in raising their campanies,
started to the capital to report themselves
to the governor as ready to march; one
of them on arriving at Lexington, was
apprised that he was preceded by the
other, who had only left a few minutes
and immediately drove post haste to be
in first; the other learning the object, in
creased his speed, and both continued
the race until one unfortunately broke his
buggy, and left an apparently easy con
test to his rival; but, nothing discouraged
he ungeared his horse and mounted with
out saddle, and by taking a near cut beat
his antagonist to the executive chamber,
but was informed that the number re
quired had already been accepted; in the
meantime the other came up, when both
crest fallen and disappointed, inquired if
they would not have preference m a war
with England; such is the spirit that per
vades our country."
